1st November 2017 — Chapel Choir wowed an audience of approximately 350 people in the stunning surroundings of Sherborne Abbey as part of the Dorset Schools Charity Concert in October. We were the only Juniors invited to perform in a concert of seven schools and were proud to be part of an immense fund-raising effort for two charities: Royal British Legion (which looks after our service men and women) and Casting For Recovery (which helps women recovering from breast cancer). The evening raised about £14,000 and for many in the audience our Knighton choir was the highlight of the evening.

Jeremy Moger, who organises this event commented: “A letter will follow but I am unable to wait any longer to say how utterly thrilled I was to have your fabulous choir at my concert and to be allowed to sing with them, especially with my family there to see, was just the cherry and the icing on the top. There were numerous accolades from members of the audience in praise of Knighton choir. From my perspective they are all “little angels” and just sang so beautifully. I cannot thank you enough and from the bottom of my heart please say so to all of them when you next all get together.”
